After our trip to Futuroscope we flew off in search of some sun. The only place in Europe that had any decent weather at the time was Barcelona. Previously when visiting Barcelona we had used the main airport but that is horrendously expensive for general aviation (GA) so we decided to go to a smaller airfield about miles west of Barcelona called Sabadell.
Sabadell airport turned out to be the perfect choice for GA wishing to visit Barcelona. Landing fees and parking fees are dirt cheap. We paid less than Euros for landing and days parking! Avgas is available and supplied by BP. There is a restaurant on the airfield and vending machines in the terminal. A taxi into Barcelona will cost you Euros and take about 20-25 minutes but the railway line runs right next to the airfield with Sadabell Sud station almost touching the fence. Unfortunately it is on the wrong side of the airfield but a taxi to the station will only cost about Euros and a single ticket into Barcelona just over Euros. (I'm not sure what a return cost) The journey by train took about minutes to Catalonia Square which is just at the top of the famous Ramblas in Barcelona. You can just make out the railway line in these photos although the station isn't quite visible.
